Welcome to Honors
The John V. Roach Honors College offers students generative educational opportunities in a supportive environment. If you’d like a challenge and want to engage with new ideas and worldviews while building your leadership skills for the future, come join us. Now is a particularly exciting time for Honors at TCU: we are developing new courses, envisioning new co-curricular pathways, and enhancing our collaborative projects with partners from all over the campus.
The College provides an array of opportunities for scholarship, experiential learning, and interdisciplinary study. Graduating with the major of their choice, Honors students expand their knowledge of the world and hone skills for lifelong learning. Our students receive priority registration, as well as mentoring from skilled academic advisors and faculty from across campus. Support for study abroad is also available, and our team can assist your work applying for the nation’s most competitive post-baccalaureate fellowships, including Fulbright awards that enable you to live abroad while teaching and/or doing research.
Would you like to engage in truly meaningful conversations around today’s most pressing social issues? In small classes and in the Honors residence hall, Milton Daniel, Honors students are free to express diverse opinions while developing their own insights into the challenges of today and tomorrow. Are you eager to join in project-based learning experiences? Since Honors students select from a wide variety of classes and activities, the possibilities for blending any major with an array of Honors-supported activities are endless. TCU Honors students have formed pre-med study groups; connected with faculty in a Contemporary Reading Symposium; explored the Fort Worth community; and traveled in faculty-led teams through special Honors Abroad options. TCU’s Honors College members also have special opportunities to meet with visiting scholars and civic leaders and to learn from their peers in a wide-ranging co-curricular program.
Honors students come to TCU from all over the country and all around the world, bringing unique talents and interests. Besides pursuing academic excellence, students in the Honors College are athletes, leaders in student government and Greek organizations, musicians and theatre stars, active members of student organizations, and community volunteers.
The Honors College at TCU is a special intellectual home. We hope you’ll visit with our faculty and staff to learn more about Honors and to consider joining us.
